Wärtsilä propulsion solution chosen for new Scottish fishing vessel

July 12, 2015 Featured, News No Comments

wartsila_smallA new modern fishing vessel being built by Simek AS in Norway on behalf of the U.K. operator Antares (Whalsay) Fishing Company Ltd, will feature an integrated Wärtsilä propulsion solution including main engine, controllable pitch propeller and gearbox. The Wärtsilä 2-speed gearbox, PTO/PTI, and floating frequency solution will provide the vessel with high levels of operational efficiency and flexibility in different operating modes, which were important considerations in the award of this contract. The contract was signed in June.

The vessel will be powered by a 12-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 main engine, and will operate in the fishing fields around the Shetland Islands in the north of Scotland. The Wärtsilä machinery will be delivered in spring 2016, and the vessel is scheduled to be handed over to the owners in December 2016.

“We needed to replace an existing vessel with a new more efficient design.
It is very important that the ship is capable of reliable and efficient transit to and from the port and flexible trawling operations. We have experience with Wärtsilä machinery and are confident that it will fulfil all the needed operational requirements for the owners”, say Laurence Irvine (Skipper) and George Williamson (Chief Engineer).

“Wärtsilä has a strong position in the fishing vessel market, and we are pleased that we have once again been selected to provide the propulsion machinery needed to attain optimal efficiency for this modern vessel,” says Aaron Bresnahan, Vice President, Sales, Wärtsilä Ship Power.

The 75.4 metre long vessel has been designed by Skipsteknisk AS, Norway.

Wärtsilä in brief:

Wärtsilä is a global leader in complete lifecycle power solutions for the marine and energy markets. By emphasising technological innovation and total efficiency, Wärtsilä maximizes the environmental and economic performance of the vessels and power plants of its customers.
